Mr. Collins is the author of Criminal Minds: Killer Profile (due out in 2008) and Criminal Minds: Jump Cut (2007). Please email me for the password for this chat. :)
Criminal Minds: All the writers for Criminal Minds have imdb pages. On the bottom of an imdb page there is a message board. I recently looked at the pages for the Criminal Minds writers and they are not as active as the pages for writers of other TV shows. Since we have entered Criminal Minds rerun hell this would be a great time to correct the situation. Here are the imdb links for our writers. We need to start a Criminal Minds thread for each writer so that when newbies look at their pages they can get a sense of the wonderful work these writers have done and will hopefully soon continue to do on Criminal Minds. So pick a writer and start a thread or if someone beats you to it then add some postive comments about the episodes the writer has written.

Criminal Minds: Please use this thread to discuss Criminal Minds' episode "Children of the Dark". What did you think of the episode? Criminal Minds spoilers....you have been warned!
*** Here is the original spoiler thread from the first airing***
Criminal Minds: Here is the quote and song info for Criminal Minds episode "Children of the Dark":
Quote: Prentiss: "Crime seems to change character when it crosses a bridge or a tunnel. In the city, crime is taken as emblematic of class and race. In the suburbs, though, it's intimate and psychological-resistant to generalization, a mystery of the individual soul".~ Barbara Ehrenreich
The Cinematic Orchestra is the band, and "To Build a Home" is the song.

Criminal Minds: No, it's not a new movie with Matthew Gray Gubler, Dr. Spencer Reid on Criminal Minds, but an old student movie. The pics in the photo strip are from that movie, "Scarf Day", which was made in the spring of 2000 by Andrew Seger and is just under six minutes long. Thanks to Stacy for the link and for getting a few screen shots while she was watching it. You can watch it here: http://lostconversations.buzznet.com/user/video/play/1836511/scarf-day-with-matthew-gray-gubler-and/
Criminal Minds actress Paget Brewster, Emily Prentiss on Criminal Minds, was prank'd
by Raviv Ullman on the set of "The Big Bad Swim" in Dec 2007. Paget Brewster obviously has a great sense of humor. Video courtesy of luckyblue07.
Criminal Minds: We have no more new episodes of Criminal Minds until the writers strike ends. Let's hope the strike ends soon and the writers, cast and crew of Criminal Minds can get back to work and salvage the third season of Criminal Minds SOON!

Criminal Minds: The third Season of Criminal Minds has been awesome so far and while we wait for more episodes to be made I was wondering what your favorite Criminal Minds Season Three episode is so far.
Criminal Minds: New Contest starts on Jan 28 and ending at noon on Feb 2nd on the Criminal Minds Fanatic website message board. Win a 4x6 autographed picture of Paget Brewster, Emily Prentiss on Criminal Minds.
When a thread doesn't have any activity on it for 120 days and a member decides to post a message a red warning note pops up asking them if they really want to post there. It is great to post there. Here is the contest:
Find as many old threads as you can and post something of substance (meaning, a comment of at least 25 words that is relevant to the thread). At the end of your comment place the number that corresponds with how many of these you have found. Now let me make this very clear and fair. Even if someone beats you to the red warning message, if you are posting on an old thread it stills counts even if you were not first. Example: you post your 25 plus word comment and then you just add #4 (or whatever number you are up to).
We started this message board long after the show first aired so it would be nice to bring the board up to date and discuss older topics.
Criminal Minds writers Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie, writers for Criminal Minds, wrote six episodes of "L.A. Dragnet" (Riddance, The Magic Bullet, For Whom the Whistle Blows, Artful Dodger, Cutting of the Swath and The Big Ruckus). Jay Beattie told us in the Criminal Minds chat last week that they enjoyed writing for this show. I look forward to finding these episodes and watching their older work. They rock the roof writing for Criminal Minds!
Criminal Minds: The second book in the Criminal Minds series written by Max Collins is being released in May of 2008. Here is some info from the publisher: Criminal Minds: Killer Profile by Max Collins. Release: May 2008.
"They're members of the Behavioral Analysis Unit, an elite team of FBI profilers tasked with examining the nation's most twisted criminal minds—and anticipating their next moves before they strike again....
The BAU team is called in to help Chicago detectives investigate a series of bizarre murders: a couple shot to death in a parked car; two women strangled in a public park; and a young man's decomposed body stuffed in a plastic barrel. Though equally violent and disturbing, the crimes seem unrelated—until profiler David Rossi makes the connection.
Rossi recognizes each grisly tableau, murders modeled on the crime scenes of three of the country's most notorious serial killers: the Son of Sam, Ted Bundy, and Jeffrey Dahmer. Someone is taking the cult of true crime to terrifying extremes...and since there are so many killers left to emulate, Rossi wonders how he can possibly profile a killer who's hiding within the killer profiles of others."
Criminal Minds: Joe Mantegna, David Rossi on Criminal Minds, will host his 8th annual golf invitation tournament on June 30 to benefit Home Ownership Made Easy (H.O.M.E.), a non-profit organization that assists members of the developmentally disabled community by providing affordable housing.

Criminal Minds: Paget Brewster, Emily Prentiss on Criminal Minds, is pictured above at the Sundance Film Festival in 2004 where she promoted "My Big Fat Independent Movie". The movie is on sale now at amazon.com if you would like to purchase a copy.
"My Big Fat Independent Movie" is a feature comedy that includes spoofs of some of the indie film world's most renowned movies such as "Memento," "Pulp Fiction," "Magnolia," "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," "Amelie," "Run Lola Run," "El Mariachi," "The Good Girl," "Pi," "Swingers" and many others.
Criminal Minds fans around the globe are feeling the effects of the writers strike. Here is a link to a German article which talks about TV programming in general. I found it interesting to read that they dub Criminal Minds into german. I can't imagine any voices being as good as the voices of Paget Brewster, Shemar Moore, Kirsten Vangsness, Thomas Gibson, A.J. Cook, Matthew Gray Gubler or Joe Mantegna.
Friday, January 25, 2008
Criminal Minds: Jay Beattie, holding his beautiful daughter at a Christmas part in CA, sent along a note about "Limelight" which he wrote with his Criminal Minds writing partner, Dan Dworkin. "Limelight" starred Joe Mantegna, Thomas Gibson, Shemar Moore, Kirsten Vangsness, Matthew Gray Gubler, A.J. Cook, Paget Brewster and guest starred Andrea Roth as Jill Morris.
--Having seen much conjecture on the blog about how Dan and I may have named the character of Jill in Limelight after our #1 fan, I am compelled to set the record straight. We wrote Limelight in the beginning of October and at that point in time we had not even met nor had the pleasure of speaking to your fearless moderator. I believe it was Dan who first suggested the name Jill, which also happens to be the name of his sister. Now don't jump to conclusions. I can assure you that her beautiful name is all she shares with the character we created for the show. So you see, it's all just a coincidence. If and when we name a character after Ms. Davidson you can bet it will be a female who is strong, ethical and intelligent - the kind of woman Morgan and Hotch might find irresistible. Wink, wink.
The Criminal Minds Fanatic website and the Criminal Minds Conversation Yahoo group will be hosting a Criminal Minds chat on Sunday, January 27th at 4pm est. The password for this chat is Garcia and I am happy to be delivering some exciting news to you during the chat. See you all there and I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Criminal Minds star Shemar Moore, Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds, and the United Negro College Fund's An Evening of Stars Celebration:
Performers will include Ne-Yo, Anita Baker, Joss Stone, John Legend and many others. Presenters will include Tichina Arnold, Shemar Moore and Tom Joyner. Five-time Emmy winner Louis J. Horvitz is the executive producer and director of the show.
Criminal Minds: Interesting writers strike article. Lets hope our Criminal Minds writers are back writing new episodes of Criminal Minds soon. New Criminal Minds episodes left to air-0-!
"Because compensation doesn't exist for a brand-new episode of CSI or Criminal Minds, and replacing audience numbers mathematically and without equivalent programming just isn't comparable. We know this from what we experienced during the 2004-05 NHL lock-out. Our relevant audience didn't go elsewhere - they simply disappeared."

Criminal Minds quote info for "Limelight" starring Joe Mantegna, Thomas Gibson, Paget Brewster, Matthew Gray Gubler, Kirsten Vangsness, A.J. Cook and Shemar Moore.
"I know indeed what evil I intend to do, but stronger than all my afterthoughts is my fury...fury that brings upon mortals the greatest evils." - Euripides
"For we pay a price for everything we get or take in this world; and although ambitions are well worth having, they are not to be cheaply won." - Lucy Maud Montgomery
Criminal Minds: Here is a link to a GREAT Criminal Minds article. Congrats to Joe Mantegna and sorry Mandy but this journalist really nailed it!
"Criminal Minds" exhausts its stockpile of new episodes tonight, and thanks to the ongoing writers’ strike, episode 13 will likely be the show's season finale.
But if this is the end of the season, the CBS crime drama can find solace in the fact that its third season, abbreviated though it was, was still its best. And that is all the more amazing because this season was supposed to be a disaster."
Criminal Minds: Here's an article about Joe Mantegna (Dave Rossi, Criminal Minds) from May, 2007 done while he was in Washington to co-host the National Memorial Day Concert with Gary Sinise. Article is here: http://blog.washingtonpost.com/celebritology/2007/05/catching_up_with_joe_mantegna.html

Criminal Minds: This week CBS will air our last new episode of Criminal Minds until the writers strike is over. Here is a project for all the fans of Criminal Minds:
As we know, the DGA-AMPTP have reached a deal and the AMPTP & WGA have started informal conversations again. Until the AMPTP & WGA have signed a new contract, we need to call the AMPTP directly to let them know that we, their customers, want them to return to the table in good faith and without anymore sneaky agendas.
It will go directly to an answering message, so you don't have to worry about "talking" to someone or getting nervous. When you call please state:
Your demographic information.
You want them to bargain in "good faith" this time.
You hope the talks start immediately.
Remember to be: polite, firm, and brief.
Criminal Minds: Chris Mundy, Co-Executive Producer and writer for Criminal Minds, wrote two episodes (Blank Generation and The Badlands) of "Cold Case" prior to the start of Criminal Minds. This YouTube is of "The Badlands" which aired on October 3, 2004. Written by Chris Mundy and Directed by Tim Matheson.
"When the prime suspect proves to be innocent, Rush and the team re-open a 2003 triple homicide at a now-condemned restaurant in a blighted inner-city neighborhood. The diner had been a neighborhood oasis before the owners & their 17-year-old busboy were brutally murdered. The original crime scene was Rush's first case, but she was soon called off to join the Cold Case squad, leaving Vera as the officer in charge. It quickly becomes clear that Vera's investigation was sloppy, which infuriates Jeffries, who grew up in the neighborhood." http://imdb.com/name/nm0612768/
Criminal Minds writers Debra J. Fisher and Erica Messer wrote three episodes of "Alias", Passage Part One, Rendezvous and Mea Culpa. Here is the info on "Mea Culpa": First aired on December 9, 2001. Writer: Debra J. Fisher, Erica Messer. Director: Ken Olin
Sydney's life is placed in mortal danger when Sloane is informed by his superior that she is the SD-6 mole. Meanwhile, Dixon's life hangs in the balance after he is shot on a mission, and Will realizes that his discovery of Kate Jones' pin could uncover some unexpected information.
** At 4 cents a dvd, how many dvds would we all have to buy of the first season of Alias so Deb could buy Brodie a box of doggie biscuits and Erica could buy a box of animal crackers for her two children?
Criminal Minds: Debra J. Fisher and Erica Messer, Criminal Minds writers of Scared to Death, Open Season, The Last Word, The Perfect Storm, Charm and Harm, Open Season, Unfinished Business, Natural Born Killer and Birthright, wrote for "The O.C" as I mentioned on the blog yesterday. I was surprised when my daughter told me this morning that we owned the dvds for "Charmed" season seven. Deb and Erica wrote two episodes of "Charmed", Show Ghouls and Once in a Blue Moon. The dvds are available for purchase on amazon.com (Do Erica & Deb get 4 or 8 cents for each copy sold?)

Criminal Minds: These pictures are from the website of Bobby Preston-Weiss, http://www.bobbypreston.net/bresume.htm, who guest starred on the Criminal Minds episode Boogeyman. Here, he is pictured with Andi Bushell, the writer of Boogeyman.
In this picture Bobby is with the director of the episode, Steve Boyum.
In these two pictures, we have four of the guest stars in Boogeyman with Criminal Minds' star Matthew Gray Gubler. From left to right: Bobby Preston-Weiss, Elle Fanning, Matthew Gray Gubler, Noah Matthews and Preston Bailey.
The second season Criminal Minds episode, Boogeyman, was written by Andi Bushell, directed by Steve Boyum and starred Thomas Gibson, Matthew Gray Gubler, Shemar Moore, A.J. Cook, Kirsten Vangsness, Lola Glaudini and Mandy Patinkin.
Criminal Minds: With so few first run episodic shows airing on TV, now is a great time to take a look back at the previous projects that our Criminal Minds writers have written. I borrowed a few VCR tapes and watched one of Debra J. Fisher and Erica Messer's episodes of "The O.C.". It is a totally different type of show than Criminal Minds, but it certainly had the level of excellent writing we have since come to expect from the "Gruesome Twosome" on Criminal Minds. Take a look at the IMDBs of our writers and then ask your friends and co-workers if they have any of these shows available for you to borrow.
"Oliver plans a trip for the gang, but things don’t go as well as everyone might have hoped- except for Oliver of course. Summer really plants herself into “friendship” within Anna and Seth’s relationship. Jimmy and Sandy decide to go into business together. Caleb and Julie return from Europe, and Hailey and Kirsten butt heads. Ryan finds himself in the cold." First aired: 1/14/2004
